Congratulations to Ms. Zoe Rothenberger, Meridian high school Geometry teacher, for being named a recipient of the Knowles Teaching fellowship! The Knowles Teaching Fellowship is an intensive and cohesive, five-year program that supports early-career, high school mathematics and science teachers in their efforts to develop teaching expertise and lead from the classroom. Throughout the 5 years in the program, recipients are connected with mentors and teacher-coaches, collaborate with other fellowship teachers, attend professional development sessions to enhance teaching and receive a stipend for more professional development that can be shared with other teachers at the school. Only 30 teachers are chosen out of thousands of applicants. Congratulations to Ms. Rothenberger!
